Utilizing printmaking processes in order to deconstruct the traditional elements of photographic representation, these works can be viewed as an allegory of fragmentation. Depicting landscapes commanded by ice and water – regions at ground zero in terms of climate change and global warming – these stark images represent our modern existence as we enter a world in which resources are disappearing and ecosystems are vanishing. Each image can be said to update the Romantic preoccupation with ruination, presenting a twenty-first century vision of impermanence that proposes a modification of conventionalized ideas of how reality may look. Stripped and re-presented as disintegrated, ambiguous documents, the works offer an apocalyptic narrative that turns each piece into ethereal conditions of reality and realms of absolute fantasy.
